When to Hire a Claims Lawyer After Wind Damage




High winds are a common cause of damage to homes, businesses, and other structures in Florida. It is not uncommon for property owners to file a wind insurance claim during their lives. It is often critical to the policyholder that the claims be paid in full under the policy to complete repairs quickly.


The real trick is knowing when to get legal representation involved. In this post, The Innocent Law Firm team helps you understand when it is an excellent time to speak with a wind damage lawyer and where you can get legal help in Florida:


When to Consult with a Florida Wind Damage Claims Lawyer


The good news is that many wind damage claims can be resolved fairly and quickly without the need for legal representation. The bad news is that this is not always the case, so it is a good idea to seek professional assistance if you do not get the results you want.


You probably do not need to reach out to a lawyer about your insurance claim if the wind damage to your property was minor or if you understand your policy and feel comfortable negotiating a fair settlement.


However, you should consult an attorney at the very least if disagreements apply to:

· The extent of the damage

· Insurance coverage and limits

· Partial or total denials

· How the insurer handled your case

· Opinions regarding previous damage

· And more


Never accept an unsatisfactory settlement until you run your case by a wind damage claims lawyer in Florida. If your property has been severely damaged or your insurance coverage is complicated, you may want to consult an attorney before filing a claim. This strategy is particularly useful in claims residential and commercial properties.
